Not long ago I took a call from a family who recently moved out of a 3 bedroom apartment and into a more spacious 4 bedroom home, bringing them closer to their retired, aging parents who themselves live in a small 2 bedroom home.
The move allowed them to more freely navigate around the house without stepping on each others toes, and also granted their parents more access when they wanted to visit.
Sadly, all three entrances to the new home had a 3-6” threshold difference, making it hard for them to enter and exit whenever they please. They weren’t over often enough to fix the threshold, yet something needed to be done to prevent injuries and unnecessary pain in their joints.
The husband explained he and his wife had been searching online for some time looking for an inexpensive solution, one that would reach the threshold height, be lightweight and portable.
I told him he had called the right place! Handi-Ramp carries a variety of threshold ramps for different needs, including rubber thresholds, aluminum thresholds, raised button thresholds, adjustable, and bariatric thresholds. The raised button and adjustable thresholds are the more lightweight models we carry, with each ramp reaching a max height of 6”. The aluminum ramps are available in heights between ¼” and 3” and come standard with a black non slip grit tape. The rubber threshold ramps are available in three heights, with the max height at 4 ½”, however unlike the other models this ramp can be trimmed should the length/width be too long for your application.
In the end, he chose an adjustable aluminum threshold ramp for its price and ability to easily adjust the heights.
